Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet

Yesterday I got to shoot probably the most exciting assignment I've had yet: Eric Stonestreet. He is a K-State alum and apparently comes back quite often to speak to theatre classes on campus as well as attend sporting events. He was very funny in person, and had great stories and advice to tell the students. Here are just a few of my favorites:

Stonestreet smiles up at a high school student who admitted how shy and scared she was to ask him a question. 

After another student was struck speechless when she ended up with the microphone, Stonestreet wandered up the stairs to sit by her, which only seemed to shell-shock her more. 

Stonestreet's Emmy award held by a faculty member of K-State's theatre department.

Stonestreet laughs as he makes a joke about not carting the Emmy with him everywhere he goes as he wanders around the stage. Stonestreet gave the Emmy to his parents as a "thank you" for their support of him early in his career. His parents live in KC, so it was an easy stop for him to get it on the way to Manhattan.
